Automation Light Grids

Automation jobs involving two-dimensional inspection or counting are crucial. Automation light grids from SICK can be utilized in a number of these solutions, including checking for presence and pallet overhang detection as well as identifying and counting irregularly shaped objects, persons, and vehicles. One light grid cannot handle all of the many tasks since they are so diverse. Light grids from SICK come in a variety of ranges, heights, widths, orientations, and resolutions, making integration simpler due to their great performance and adaptability.
